Millennials in America would trade their free country for life under socialism and communism

If millennials were the only generation that voted, the United States would be a socialist regime.

In a shocking poll that doesn’t bode well for America’s future, almost half of U.S. Millennials, to the tune of 45 percent, would actually prefer to live in a socialist country. That percentage easily outpaced the 42 percent who prefer capitalism.

What’s more, 7 percent would like to live in an entirely communist country.

The poll of more than 2,000 people was conducted by YouGov and the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, and involved surveying millennial views on various political systems.

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said foundation director Marion Smith in a statement to Fox News. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

In what Fox News calls “one of the most troubling findings of the report,” more than 40 percent believe the First Amendment should be restricted to make sure nobody is allowed to say anything “offensive.”

The poll also revealed a lack of knowledge about what communism actually is, as 70 percent failed to even know the definition of the word or understand how many people have been historically murdered under the system.

“This troubling turn highlights widespread historical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago,” said Smith.

However, some millennials were quick to take issue with their own generation via Twitter:

Others were critical of the ‘entitled’ generation.
